LPC8N04 Development Board for LPC8N04 MCU

The LPC8N04 Development Board provides a powerful and flexible development system for NXP's innovative, NFC-enabled LPC8N04 Arm Cortex-M0+ based MCU.

The board can be used with a range of development tools, including the MCUXpresso IDE toolchain. The board is complemented by a sample smartphone application and firmware to utilize the built-in LED array and speaker in a scrolling message demo application with option for music playback. The LPC8N04 process section of the board, with its integral antenna, can be detached for deployment in prototype or proof-of-concept designs. The board also includes an onboard CMSIS-DAP debug probe which is supported by most IDEs, so development can be started with no additional cost.

  • Compatible with MCUXpresso IDE and other popular toolchains (incl. IAR and Keil)
  • Onboard CMSIS-DAP (debug probe), based on LPC11U35 MCU
  • Debug connector to allow debug of target MCU using an external probe
  • Detachable LPC8N04 minimal target with integrated PCB antenna
  • Supports energy harvesting operation with no battery or external power connection
  • User and target reset buttons
  • 5x7 LED array for user applications
  • Surface mount speaker with an amplifier for PWM-based sound output
  • Capable of operating from a choice of coin battery types (not supplied)
  • Pre-programmed with demo message scrolling/tune playing application (requires NFC-enabled Android phone to use)
